Memorial Day

Memorial Day

Memorial Day, May 28th, is a solemn day where we are called on to remember our brave men and women who have died serving our country. LifeShield appreciates all the military service men and women and their families for your sacrifice, your bravery and for keeping our country safe! Thank you for your service!

If you are looking to recognize this holiday, there are many ways to celebrate and honor those who have served. Here are a few ideas:


Many people gather family and friends to spend time together over Memorial Day. Follow these safety tips for a successful event. 

Hosting a BBQ with friends and family? Always be sure to:

Heading to the pool or the beach for a good swim? It’s so important to keep an eye on young and weak swimmers at all times. It only takes a moment for a child to slip under water undetected. Be sure to wear lifejackets or inflatable swimmies/tubes, and use sunscreen to protect your skin from the strong sun. Reapply every two hours and after a long swim.

Having trouble getting your LifeShield Home Security system up and ready to arm? If you are a new customer, make sure you have the system set up properly and you remember your master code, security question and answer, etc. For our long-term customers, a refresher on this wouldn’t hurt! Also, make sure everything is still in working order. If you need new accessory products, order online here. If you order soon, you’ll catch our spring sale!

In the event of an emergency, we have a fire safety sensor that will listen for your fire alarm and alert our monitoring center immediately. The fire department will be called when necessary.

Wedding Season


Love is in the Air!  May and June are very popular times for weddings. It’s also a popular time to receive monetary gifts and expensive items from your registry. 

Newlyweds should prioritize getting a home security system like LifeShield as they build their new nest together. Consider this when planning for the wedding and honeymoon: 

A LifeShield Home Security system is a gift that keeps on giving! Consider giving one to the newlyweds in your life. They will thank you every time they’re able to check in on their home and pets from their mobile device. If the couple already has a LifeShield system, consider expanding their safety and purchase some additional accessory items or a year of monitoring.

Skin Cancer Awareness Month


May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Although skin cancer is the most common in the United States, fortunately, it is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Be sure to schedule your annual skin check wellness visit to a dermatologist.

May is also the perfect time to get involved by donating to a charity to support research and to raise awareness through education. Research helps to advance towards treatment and hopeful cures. By raising awareness about the dangers of unprotected skin exposure and practicing safe habits while in the sun, behaviors can change and decrease the number of those diagnosed with this disease.

Follow these outdoor safety tips:

Now that the sun is shining brighter and stronger, it is time to stock up on your sunscreen. It is always important to wear – whether you are going for a quick walk, laying on the beach or cheering your family on during their soccer game. Whenever you’re outside, wear sunscreen!
